Hunter Engineering introduces Hawkeye XL alignment system for trucks, trailers, buses

The new alignment system for commercial vehicles features new camera technology and integrates with the HunterNet 2 portal.

Hunter’s new Hawkeye XL alignment system is designed for maximum speed, durability and ease of use for a wide range of commercial vehicles. The aligner provides highly accurate measurements in four minutes or less, the company noted in a recent press release.

“With our old system, I was doing 15 trucks in one 10-hour day,” said Vernon Embree, technician, Prime Inc., who tested the Hawkeye XL with Prime’s large fleet of newer trucks. “Now I’ve hit 26 trucks in one day. I would definitely recommend the XL to anybody.”

At the heart of the Hawkeye XL is new camera technology with extra-long range and extra-large targets, expanded from the Hawkeye Elite alignment system. The aligner features lightweight, three-dimensional XL targets that are highly durable, low-maintenance and non-electronic, according to Hunter. High-definition cameras provide extra-long-range sight, capturing measurements in a single rolling compensation and displaying live alignment readings for up to three axles at once.

The extended range delivers extended results, enabling the XL to align 53-ft. trailers. With a moveable camera beam and portable cabinet, technicians can perform alignments on either the floor or a lift, in any bay. The XL also offers optional Fully Integrated Alignment with Hunter’s L494HD alignment rack or FIA-compatible turnplate kits to streamline processes. Standard self-centering adaptors fit wheels from 15 to 28 in. Optional Quick Grips are available in both heavy-duty and passenger versions.

Additionally, Hawkeye XL connects to the HunterNet 2 customer portal, allowing users to monitor alignment performance remotely and in real time.
